The city of Austin, Texas, is home to a well trodden but unofficial gathering place for leash-averse dogs. Eighty acres, hundreds of dogs; these are my stories.

A Toast: Puppy Toast
I was inspired to make bread from scratch the other day. I embellished a basic recipe for oatmeal bread. I kept adding ingredients until I had concocted a monstrous batch of dough. It kept crawling out of the bowls, and ultimately it sprawled out of the pans as it baked. I gave a loaf to Erica (Cocoa and Joey), apologizing for its "love handles." But when Erica sliced it for her breakfast, the bread's true shape emerged. As you can see, with Erica's addition of raisin eyes and an almond nose, it's a puppy! (Dog is everywhere.) Her photo of her breakfast made me smile. I hope it makes you smile, too.
The Dog Park is an unofficial leash-free zone where dozens of dogs daily defy the law under live oak and pecan trees. Names in this blog may have been changed or obscured to protect the innocent and the easily offended.
